The Warren Township Library, closed since Nov. 11 for repainting and other interior renovations, is due to reopen to the public at noon on Thursday, two days ahead of schedule.
"The library staff is looking forward to welcoming the community at the library on Thursday afternoon," said Marcela Dunham, adult programming and public relations director at the library.
The Warren library, a branch of the Somerset County Library System at 42 Mountain Boulevard in Warren, will reopen two days ahead of the anticipated reopening date of Saturday, Dec. 7.
The Library has been closed, with some programs moved next door to the Warren court room, and the book drop removed to allow for painting and improvements to the facility, including the women’s public restroom.
The Warren staff already has been back at the library unpacking boxes, checking in materials and sprucing up the premises, in order to welcome patrons back by Thursday, Dunham said.
Book Drop now is in use again
The book drop is now open and patrons may bring their returns back to the Warren library, according to information from Dunham.
Starting on Friday, patrons again may start placing holds on Warren items. Those library patrons who have any existing holds to be picked up at other locations of the county library system can change the pick-up location back to Warren starting on Friday morning, Dunham said.
